Moroccan magic and adventure awaits with this decorative and quite beautiful mosaic hanging lantern. It is structured around a cast glass tear-drop shape that is then finished by hand with a floral mosaic pattern and metal adornments attached by soldering. Beads are embedded in the mosaic grout making an interesting and eye-catching feature. As an unlit decorative object it is pretty stunning, but drop a tea light inside (due to the handmade nature of this lantern, this is a little tricky, but so worth it) and the magic awakens.
Supplier Info: The makers’ story is an interesting one too. It is a small business with only twenty-five employees based in Delhi, India. They believe that everyone there is equal regardless of status; “everyone is a worker and everyone is an owner”, which goes a long way towards explaining their friendly working and co-operative atmosphere. They provide breakfast and other meals to their employees as well as bonuses and medical benefits. The items are 100% handcrafted using traditional techniques and their ambition is to become one of the leading companies that manufacture metal and glass handicraft products in India. Their main targets are to satisfy their customers and ensure a happy and healthy working atmosphere.
